Taking a Poll
Gabourey Sidibe stars in 'Tower Heist' as Odessa, a housekeeper who works for Mr.Shaw. Sidibe has said that this entire (funny) exchanged was improvised!
Odessa: "You married?"
Slide: "Say what?"
Odessa: "You married?"
Slide: "No, I ain't married. What's up?"
Odessa: "Just taking a poll."
Slide: "Taking a poll?"
Odessa: "I'll take your poll..."
Buttoned-up Mr. Fitzhugh (Matthew Broderick) sums things up nicely in this quote: Sweet and timid Odessa proves to be anything but, as she takes out anyone standing in her way.
Mr. Fitzhugh: "The maid's gone rogue!"
More funny Odessa. The quote itself is pretty benign, but it's Gabby Sidibe's delivery, in a Jamaican accent, that makes it so funny.
Odessa: "Ya mess wit me, ya a dead man."
